Americans voted for Democrats in the last election by the largest margin by any party in history. Mitch’s logic is so tortured it practically violates the Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment. Not that violating the Constitution bothers him.

She is legendary, for her grit, her intellect, and her deep understanding of the human experience. Justice is diminished by her loss.

No settlement can fill the void Breonna Taylor's family was left with, but the policing reforms they advocated for and secured today are a tremendous step forward toward a more just Louisville. I thank Ms. Tamika Palmer and family for their courage & strength through all of this.

State & local governments are barreling toward major budget shortfalls & are struggling to provide the critical services their residents depend on. Additional relief is essential to keep education, health care, & other state programs afloat.

Sept. 11 forever changed us all. Today we mourn the thousands of lives lost, and grieve with those in pain, while also celebrating the courage of the day's many heroes. We will never forget, and we lift our people in prayer.

It’s always painful to reflect on the events of 9/11 and how they affected our nation, but this year it feels even more powerful. Thinking of those lost and those they left behind on that tragic day and in the wars and conflicts since. Praying for peace for all.

President Trump did not create or invent the coronavirus. But his reckless actions—and the even more dangerous inactions of his Admin.—make him directly responsible to the families of the more than 190,000 Americans who have been taken from us, including nearly 1,000 Kentuckians.

We now know that the president was saying this privately as he: - Shipped our PPE overseas - Repeatedly told us the virus was “going to disappear” - Downplayed importance of wearing masks - Refused to invoke DPA to ensure we had PPE & testing - Continued to hold campaign rallies

Strange that Mitch doesn’t mention that he and the Trump administration were the ones trying to kill , defunding it both in Trump’s Budget proposal and the Senate-passed NDAA.
